Some of you have written to me comparing Rooney Mara's white Givenchy to Victoria Beckham's glorified housecoat at this event in 2008. Click here for a refresher. Sort of. But this is infinitely superior, non? That zipper detail is amazing. Full Story

Totally clueless. It's a white dress with a ring collar. And? This is something Katie Holmes, Mrs Cruise the lobotomised, would have chosen. This is not something Katie Holmes, the single mother ninja who engineered a daring escape from the clutches of Scientology, should be choosing FOR F-CK's SAKE. Full Story

You know, I think I almost prefer what she wore the last time she was at the MET Gala in 2011. Last year she skipped the event after 4 in a row because Scarjo decided to go instead. But do you remember? She was orange and it was a Chanel toga? Click here Full Story

If there was one look that was perfect for one person, it was this Marc Jacobs on Miley Cyrus. She's not going to a baptism. She's not going to a wedding. She's 20 years old. She's at the MET Gala. And they're supposed to be Punk. This is Punk sexy without skin, and young without feeling pervy, and a little bit trashy because that's the spirit. Full Story

Certainly not what I would have predicted at the beginning of the night. And this is certainly not as punk as it gets. Probably not punk at all. For Taylor Swift though, it’s definitely not her usual hand hearts. Does that deserve some credit? She looks really, really good with her hair pushed off her face like this too. Full Story

This is a Saint Laurent. It almost makes me angry. Is it... Is it the Nominees’ Luncheon? Is it... I dunno... an environmental fundraiser? Or are we in New York. At the MET Gala. With superficial assholes that only care about clothes? Yeah? And did you agree to go? Full Story

Another example of what Duana called Game Of Thrones as punk at the MET Gala. It’s less punk than it is medieval bride, and perhaps what Cersei Lannister will wear when she marries Loras Tyrell, if that wedding ever happens, and maybe it’s a Canadian thing but it’s always a good day when Linda Evangelista shows up somewhere. Full Story

MET Most Surprising: Stacy Keibler

I don’t hate it. Not at all. It’s far from the worst of the night. Or the most boring. Or the most Try. It’s not a mega standout but that’s OK too. It wouldn’t have been possible for Stacy Keibler, without George Clooney, to rise to the top anyway. But middle of the pack is about right. Full Story

Last year, Kate Upton, unlike most other models, had to offer to pay her way into the MET Gala. Click here for a refresher. This year, Oh My God, look what happened to her. There is no snark here. There is no pleasure. There is only sympathy, truly. Full Story

If it has to be taffeta with asymmetrical hem, then let Vivienne Westwood have at ‘er. And put it on Christina Ricci who always comes to play at the MET Gala. Finally, someone who showed up. Pick something Reese Witherspoon would never be offered. Make sure the construction matches the imagination. Full Story

Red Taffeta at the MET: Kate Beckinsale

Red Taffeta. At the MET Gala. With an asymmetrical hem. It’s offensive. If you have to do taffeta, you do it like Christina Ricci -- more on her later. Red Taffeta you save for Julie Bowen, at the Emmy Awards. Or, you know, for a 60th wedding anniversary. I can’t even with the gathering of the fabric there at the waist. Full Story

Here I am in a sequined black dress you could easily find at French Connection, my eyes weirded up with black liner, and I’ll call it enough for punk at the MET Gala. Sure... If you’re Kate Moss, fine. If you’re Chloe Sevigny, OK. But if you’re January Jones? Who can’t make a paternity scandal interesting? Let me sit you next to Amber Heard so that you can disappear together. Full Story

Duana and I were discussing Kanye West’s girlfriend’s Givenchy, which I’m convinced was a private joke between Anna Wintour and Riccardo Tisci (I am not buying those pictures, you can see them somewhere else), and she posited that perhaps the only redeeming quality about that dress is that the gloves are built-in seamlessly. Full Story
